Chiffon Cakes: Cranberry Yoghurt and Banana

I have been baking lots of chiffon cakes recently.

This Cranberry Yoghurt Chiffon Cake, which I have made many many times. Now in a new 17cm chiffon tin and gives me a very nicely browned crust.


Cranberry Yoghurt Chiffon Cake
17cm (20cm) chiffon tin:

3 (5) egg yolks (use large eggs)
25g (40g) caster sugar
40ml (65ml) vegetable oil
1 tsp (2 tsp) lemon juice
80g (130g) plain yoghurt
80g (130g) cake flour

4 (7) egg whites (use large eggs)
55g (90g) caster sugar

60g (95g) dried cranberries, chopped to small pieces and coat lightly with cake flour

Bake 170 deg C, 35 minutes (45 minutes).

This is Banana Chiffon Cake, another chiffon cake from the same book 好吃戚风蛋糕轻松上手.



It is a big challenge to take photos whenever my nieces are at home. This is what happens if you are too slow. :)


Banana Chiffon Cake

80g (130g) banana, mashed and mixed with 1 tbsp (1.5 tbsp) milk

80g (130g) cake flour

4 egg whites (use large eggs)

  3. I love chiffon cakes too. But am not very successful in making them. Mine always resulted in a dense botton layer and I still cannot figure out the reason

    1. Hi 茵茵, thanks for visiting! Could be the egg whites. I normally beat to medium stiff. After you fold in the egg whites, the resulting batter should not be too watery, if not the chiffon cake sure fail. Sometimes it's due to the recipe you used. You can try these 2 recipes, I bake many times with good results! :)

    2. Hi Small Small Baker, thanks for your reply and tips. By medium stiff, do you mean that the egg white will droop a little when lifte? I am also bad with the folding of egg whites into the mixture.

    3. Yes, just droop a little. If too stiff, I find it very hard to fold in properly, and will tend to overfold and deflate the egg whites. Or end up with lumps of egg white in the cake. :)

    1. You can bake a little longer for the nice brown crust. Tent the top with aluminium foil so that the top will not be burnt. Could also depends on the baking tin. I get very nice crust for this new tin. :)

  10. A few years back before I started blogging, I always remember you being the chiffon cake queen and always go to your blog site for all your chiffon cake recipes. Now, your reputation still lives... these two chiffon cakes looks very soft and yummy!

    1. I love chiffon cakes! But I did stop for a while sometime ago because of failures after failures. I still need lots of practice and aspiring to be a chiffon cake queen one day (not yet now, hehe!). So expect many chiffon posts if you don't find it boring. :)
